Mariam Azeez misses long jumps.

The Lincoln-Way East sophomore track athlete is able to stay in gear for her running events easy enough while school is out and practices are on hold amid the coronavirus pandemic.

But after breaking the school record for the long jump, going 19 feet-1.5 inches at the LW East Invitational indoor meet on Feb. 29 at Olivet Nazarene, she is not able to practice that event. There are no pits for her to jump into at home.
